As part of the application process, the doctor will nominate a pharmacy from which the medicinal cannabis can be collected. This will be a local pharmacy convenient for the patient. If the prescribed formulation contains the active THC, the pharmacy will require the appropriate approvals to supply schedule 8 products.
Approvals are granted within 48 hours.
Upon approval, the doctor will provide the supplier of the approved medicinal cannabis product with the relevant approval documents (from state and federal bodies) and script.
The supplier will then supply the pharmacy with the product for patient pick up. Orders are generally dispatched from wholesalers Monday – Wednesday to avoid storage by couriers over a weekend period.
Please note, medicinal cannabis products cannot be dispatched until all approvals and associated script have been received.
